Destroying public education is the sport of kings. Bill Gates blew $775m on a failed charter experiment whose subjects were children who got no say in the matter:

Gates has solid teammates in his anti-public-education crusade. I mean, who can say no to Mark Zuckerberg?

Just realized that The Blair Witch Project could only have been shot during that short window between affordable battery powered handheld video cameras becoming available and high powered LED flashlights and cheap GPS becoming ubiquitous. This reminds me a bit of how you can figure out when a globe was produced based on the names and borders of a subset of countries

"Cyberpunk's (...) class struggle, anti-establishment, anti-corporatism have been cheapened or sold off in favor of the neon, ersatz astro-turf we're fed by games like Cyberpunk 2077. Neofeud is a resounding rejection of the mortgaging of this philosophy in pursuit of profits."

Thread: You know, I think that if there weren't so many blind people on Windows, and thus screen reader vendors supporting it, I think it'd actually have terrible accessibility. Narrator has *never* been a great screen reader, and even in Windows 10, it's not that great when you try to use it as your main screen reader. The *only* reason Windows is so great is because of the blind community making stuff like the Windows App Essentials NVDA addon and such. There's something there, something I'm coming to realize. If Linux had a more welcoming community, especially of developers, I think blind developers could really find a great, stable home there.

puerto rico is excluded from SSI benefits specifically based on "inability to integrate into american society" and they "don't pay federal income taxes" (straight up just not true) meaning that entire populations are not allowed a universal right because, as it wraps up: basically they would be welfare queens. american people on SSI like me aren't even ALLOWED to have enough income to pay taxes anyway. the income cap is so low that we don't even pay taxes cuz we're DEPENDENTLY POOR. sorry we can't make you any money, u.s. govt but also sorry we're all still human ya know. medicare for all means literally everyone fuck you america vindictive colonial shitlords

Somehow we've built personal interactive computers that, in 2021, in daily use, regularly get into states where they take upwards of a minute to react to keystrokes and mouse clicks, and we've convinced ourselves that this situation is either perfectly normal or entirely the user's fault.
